Some big names from the small screen walked the 2015 Emmy Awards red carpet in jewels by Fred Leighton, Hollywood’s premier source for estate jewelry. Among those wearing Fred Leighton jewelry to the September 20 TV awards gala were Jessica Paré, Edie Falco, Tatiana Maslany, Laverne Cox, Padma Lakshmi and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Jewelry through the Ages
Fred Leighton is renowned for its extensive collection of vintage and estate jewels from the greatest design periods of jewelry’s history. Ranging from the Georgian and Victorian periods through the Edwardian and Art Deco eras to the design of the mid-20th Century, the Fred Leighton Estate Jewels feature beautiful works and signed pieces by the world’s greatest designers and jewelry makers.
Red Carpet Pioneer
Back in the day, long before the rise of the paparazzi, actresses usually wore their own dresses and jewelry to the Oscars and the Emmys (ho-hum). But when Fred Leighton began working with the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman, and Natalie Portman – and their stylists – he singlehandedly raised the profile of glamorous jewelry on red carpets around the world.
Contemporary Collections, too
In addition to offering extensive vintage and estate collections, Fred Leighton today creates contemporary jewelry with a nod to the design aesthetics of the past. Fred Leighton’s 21st– Century jewels are collectible and wearable at the same time, crafted with meticulous care to reflect the company’s belief that “great design is timeless and style is eternal.”
Fred Leighton one said that “fine jewelry is fashion’s best accessory.” On September 20, fans of the red carpet saw his philosophy come to life at the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
